with tough budget decisions, including whether to raise taxes and fees or whether to make cuts. how will your approach these choices? supervisor kim: the budget is tough this year. even though our deficit is not as large as it has been, it is tough because we have made these cuts already, and did this point, we are cutting things we really do not want to cut. and it is painful. we will lose more potential services. we will also not be able to support our residents. we are looking at weekend meals for seniors. it is painful. i think we have to look at it as a combined approach. it has to be cut within city government that we can bear -- services that are less essential. second, you have to look at raising revenue in the city. i think it needs to be a combination. and third, need to be much better informed, and we have to ask our public employees to look at the budget. and they already have, but also to look back. it is a threefold approach to me. >> what are the city's housing needs him much of the board of supervisors to to address them? supervisor kim: it is tough, because we depend on the m

of the things that we were determined to protect in that debate was the new markets tax credit, something that has benefited some of these kinds of initiatives throughout the country. so whether it was long ago and the low-income housing tax credit of which mercy housing has participated in over and over again and the new market tax credit, one of the current versions of the story. or the section 8 vouchers or the rest of that, public policy has played a role. but we can only be successful in achieving the funding for that public policy if we have examples of national significance to say this must be a priority. and it is a priority because mercy housing and st. anthony's makes people the priority. results. deeds, not just words. the words are important, but they are no substitute for making something happen from it. we all know the gospel of matthew and i was hungry, you gave me to eat and that is what st. anthony's has done. when you were homeless, you gave me shelter and that is mercy housing and they have come together. it's not just about food and housing, but it's about dignity and

used to be a line item in the budget, but you recall a couple of years ago there was a gas tax swap, a complicated maneuver to ensure that transportation funds continued to flow. the result is that the state transit assistance is now based on the details sales tax receipts. that is a fluctuating amount of money and therefore we only rely on the projections over the course of the year. so far it looks pretty good. the other big news is that the state is looking pretty good. troop prop 30 passed, significant dollars in projected revenue. so i think we find ourselves in a cautiously optimistic time. we'll be following that as the year unfolds. we participate in that process through various trade associations and our meeting, in fact, next week with the commit staff working on the bill to have california's law conform for the federal law. cap and trade another very large statewide issue. san francisco as a city family is engaging on that through our advocacy, our lobbyists, as well as the league of cities, california state association of counties and others who have an interest in maki
in their paychecks because of this payroll tax. >> that is a real concern, right? so americans are continuing to feel the pain of the economic recovery being very slow. the bottom line is the bureau of economic analysis said the shrinking economy is a cause by a reduction in government spending. so the president is drying to say look we have to get stimulus into the economy. we need to get everyone back to work. that is caused by more spending not less spending. >> the democrats have proposed you cannot spend your way into prosperity. nor you can't tax people into prosperity. what you need to do is let the free markets take control. and basically in washington, d.c., we have bigger government. the president appointed 32 czars. what are those czars doing? >> czars is just a shortening of their actual title which is normally long in the federal government. i think that bureau of economic analysis saying that the cause of the shrink damage is due to the reduction in spending that's something we need to look at. >> we have reduced spending. >> talking about they are happy to hear the president talking ab
in terms of the kind of things you want to see, cap and trade or perhaps a carbon tax or things like that. china and india continue to add a coal-fired power plant essentially every week. so, do you look at that and say this is -- climate change is going to happen, no matter what at this point? >> well, some climate change is already happening and will continue to happen. the physics of the problem are quite challenging. we put, well, 85% of the energy used by earth inc, it comes from fossil fuels. and the combustion of those fuels results in us putting 90 million tons of heat-trapping pollution into the atmosphere every day, as if it's an open sewer. it does obey the laws of physics. it traps enough extra energy every day to equal the amount in 400,000 hiroshima atomic bombs. and that's what's evaporating much more water off the oceans and filling the sky with a lot more water vapor and these great basins of water vapor in the sky are now filled or overflowing. you get the kind of downpours in my home city in nashville where thousands of my neighbors lost their homes and businesses, had
. this is the biggest tax in the world but it's a small tax and one of the measures with a car seat is pro-child and objectively anti-family. >> host: what about some of the other social forces leaning in this direction? for example working women, women going to college and all those things pushing us toward a world of having a child could be more difficult for some. >> guest: it could probably be run up against biology. anything that pushes your average age of first births backwards ultimately is going to push you to have fewer children. the average age of first birth is about 28 years old, 29 years old. it used to be about 22 and part of this as we is we made college virtually required for middle-class both men and women and as you push back the age of first family formations of people can really think about getting married right out of college to 22 and april used to be married and settled and ready to begin family life. again you start pushing that horizon where you might be having children further back and this causes if you want to have a bunch of kids close together which only crazy
of the things that mitt romney talked about. he said there's some low-hanging fruit. there are a lot of tax loopholes that should be closed. i agree with him. we haven't done that. >> like which ones? >> well, oil subsidies. we have issues dealing with shipping jobs overseas. why don't we do some -- fill some of these -- >> i think if my numbers are correct, you do the oil and gas subsidy, i think that might save you something like 25 billion over ten years. >> no, it's more than that, george. but let's assume because the debt ceiling doesn't kick in till august, i believe that's what we'll have, but let's add these together. let's say you're right, 30 billion. but let's -- jobs overseas, we can dial that however we want because it's all -- a huge loss of revenue, corporate jets, tehre are all kind of things that are low-hanging fruit. >> you've heard the republicans across the board here. they're saying they're done with revenues for 2013. >> george, the american people are on our side. the american people don't believe in these austere things. we believe that the rich should contribute. w

, this the notice comes directly from sb 1186, the law, which is on the tax and treasurer's form, so i am in conversation with them to also include our departments as a resource as well. so, hopefully that will take place. so just wanted to let you know. so as director mccarthy or commissioner mccarthy mentioned there is this dollar collected and we roughly have about 80,000 businesses registered in the city. and so, 70 percent of that of the dollar is to stay in the local municipality, 65, 5 percent goes to the administration of handling the funds. and then 65 percent is to go towards past inspections and helping businesses do their construction related activities. the requirements and any kind of education and out reach. so i think that it is written pretty broadly, so i think to allow municipalities to sort of develop their own means of how they wanted to administrator the funding. and so, we will be working on that with your department together. and so, roughly that is about 52,000 dollars. should every business pay that dollar. the tax and treasury's office did let us know that with

it civilly would be a local scaled acceleration of affordable tax and co generation of energy efficiency and other local renewable demand site resource as far as the conceptual approach and the product definition this is seasonally what was referred to in the industry as energy as a service and that means that you get out of the old kilowatt hour paradigm that goes back to the 1930's where you are selling hours of power into a service approach where you are standard dyeing on site affordable tax and building retrofits as standard components of that service we focus on a no money down approach to energy efficiency and renewables this would not only require any kind of a late premium to the customers but a rate discount for those customers and is so energy efficiency with a discount and no money down and that is product differentiation that p g and e does not offer and utilities do not offer but we are uniquely poised to offer. this would apply to both the business community as well as residential customers. and so, as far as the approach to development we are really recommending an integr
